in thread why are hex values not numbers?

I already ceded octal: So, now it's only hex-like strings you want to make a special case of. The ideas wearing a bit thin isn't. someone came up with color codes in hex, which are already oft unquoted,: It doesn't have to be quotes -- its in a string. It's only you wants to be able to treat that ambiguous string as a number.

You're like a dog with a bone tied to its tail, chasing around in circles refusing to let go! Fatuous.
